A Service to Commemorate the Life of Florence Nightingale

The annual Service to Commemorate the Life of Florence Nightingale was held at Westminster Abbey on Wednesday 13th May 2009.

In a sermon addressed to 2,000 nurses and health professionals in the Abbey, the Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall, argued that spirituality was fundamental to health care and to healing, that it was advanced by chaplains and should be embedded in the training of health professionals. He argued for spiritual leadership in the health service.
